KING CONGO BARS...their flavor and wow
factor...definitely lives up to the name. actually
these should be called "Aunt Betty's Congo Bars" since the recipe has been handed down from her. besides everybody's got an Aunt Betty...right?

the passage of nutty chewwy chocolatey bliss leads right through here...

sometimes you feel like a nut...

sometimes you don't..

as you can see, this makes for quite a few bars so i made 1/2 with and 1/2 without sliced almonds. i happen to prefer with...cuz i'm a known NUT!

preheat oven to 350

line a 12x15 cookie pan with aluminum me on this one. makes for easier removal...the ol' flip and peel method

sift together 2 2/3 c. flour, 2 1/2 tsp.baking powder and 1 tsp. salt...set aside

melt 2/3 c. shortning or margerine in a sauce pan

dissolve 1 lb. of brown sugar in said sauce pan...let cool a bit...

put this in a mixer and add 3 eggs and 1 tsp. vanilla...mix

slowly add in dry goods...batter will be quite saucy..don't worry

spoon stir in 1 package chocolate chips

pour this onto prepared pan and sprinkle with your favorite chopped nuts. i used slivered almonds

bake at 350 for approx. 25 min. do the toothpick test. it should come out clean-ish...just not gooey
